Craig Carton has head the Aaron Rodgers to Jets rumors, but he says there is a much more sensible answer for Gang Green.

It’s not his top solution, but Craig says Tom Brady would help the Jets more than Rodgers.

“For me, Lamar Jackson is the guy to go get because it’s a long-term answer to a problem we’ve had since the franchise started,” Craig said. “But if I can’t get Lamar, Aaron Rodgers is a nice two-year type deal, but there’s an obvious answer.

“Why give up two first-round draft picks to get Aaron Rodgers when you can get Tom Brady for no draft picks?”

Evan couldn’t believe it, and remains emphatic that Brady would be a disaster for the Jets, considering Brady will be 46 by the start of next season.

“Aaron Rodgers is old, and yet he is six years younger than Tom Brady,” Evan said. “He’s gonna be 46! I want nothing to do with a 46-year-old that I don’t want on my team.”

Still, Craig says Brady at this stage of his career, if Brady decides to continue that career, would be a better get than Rodgers considering this season’s performances and what the Jets would have to give up to acquire either one.

So, the message is clear from Craig: “I want Brady.”

“He didn’t play any better than Tom Brady this year,” Craig said in response to Rodgers. “[Brady] led the league in completions this year and threw for 5,000 yards. And by the way, I think Tom Brady would play here. I think he would say yes.

“While Lamar Jackson is my guy, all eggs in that basket, why would I give up two first-round picks and have to give the guy $60 million in year one and wait until June 1, when I can go right now and get Tom Brady.”
